Top Tips For The Preggers Hen!
Remember there are certain things you shouldn’t do, so don’t get too carried away in the fun. Check with your doctor if you’re unsure about any of the above activities!
Rest when you get the chance and don’t overdo it – you know your body and your limits.
Make sure you communicate with your fellow hens honestly. If you need to head home to rest earlier than planned, you do so. They will all be looking out for you, anyway!
If you’re usually a big partygoer, you’ll know it won’t be the usual booze-filled fun, but being surrounded by your closest friends and family and having a fabulous itinerary is all you need!
Plus, you’ll be the one filling in the blanks for them the next day lol!
